Esther Wolf, Painter

What inspires you as an artist? Your style, your colors, etc?
I’m very inspired by women’s issues, especially issues that I’ve faced including body focused repetitive behaviors relating to distorted body image. Basically a form of OCD and things that I’ve recovered from in my life.

How do you think you can help women have a bigger voice in the art world?
I think it just needs to be normalized for women to be successful artists.

What do you like most about being an artist?
I love being able to create, but I don’t like the pressure of having to make something worthy. I love being able to sit back and say, “Wow, I did that.” I like when somebody sees my art and feels a little uncomfortable because I gravitate towards disturbing people. I want to evoke something that compels people and makes them feel alive.
